For the children of Immokalee, education is their way out of poverty, and Guadalupe Center is their vehicle.
The Center offers the only NAEYC-accredited Early Childhood Education Program in Collier County, an After-school Tutoring & Summer Enrichment Program for students K-2, and a college-preparatory Tutor Corps Program. Combined, the three core programs serve more than 1,400 students annually.
Guadalupe Center’s results are outstanding. More than 95% of our pre-K graduates enter school having met or exceeded Florida’s
kindergarten readiness standards and 100% of students in the After-school Program show academic gains in reading and math.
An astounding 100% of Tutor Corps seniors graduate high school and are accepted into college, a statistic that dates back 15 years. Most importantly, 92% of our Tutor Corps students graduate from college, compared to the national average for minority students of less than 20%. Our Tutor Corps alumni are now gainfully employed as educators, health care specialists, engineers, public service workers and business leaders. Several have been accepted into prestigious medical and graduate schools.
Guadalupe Center is transforming lives. Join us in creating endless possibilities through education!
